MRI

I underwent a MRI for the first time.

The other day, when I went shopping by car, the left edge of my sight was unusual. I actually couldn't see well. Moreover, I had a headache a little. I remembered then that I had watched a medical program on TV a few days before. It said that when you had a stroke, your eyelid might feel so heavy. When I came to think of it, my eyelid felt heavy a little.
Fortunately, the symptoms didn't last for a long time.
However, I had been afraid that I might have had a light stroke.

When my husband came home from work, I told him about the stroke.
He said that since I had gotten mad with my son during test week, it might have caused the stroke. I thought that he was right. I couldn't sleep well that night. I decided to go to a brain surgeon before going to an eye doctor.

Firstly, I told a nurse about my symptoms. She said to me that I would undergo a MRI. I had expected it, but it was the first time for me. Although I took a book, I was too nervous to concentrate on reading when I was waiting for it.

Just before undergoing the MRI, the other nurse asked me some questions. One of them was whether I had any implant teeth. I didn't have any, but I asked her about it. She answered that if you had, you sometimes can't undergo the MRI.
I thought I didn't want to have any implant teeth in the future.

When I went inside the MRI room, I got earplugs. When I laid down, a technologist recommended me to close my eyes during it. It took about 15 minutes. I had expected the sound for the MRI was too noisy, but it was like music to me. It was OK.

After all, the doctor diagnosed that it was no problem around the eyes in my brain. However, he found a part of blood vessel was strange. He doubted that whether it was swollen, or one blood vessel and the other one were crossing.
So, I will go there again to check up it in three months.
I believe it will be OK.

The other day, I underwent *an MRI for the first time.

* I know this will be confusing. It should be ...an MRI.... .
With initials, you are sounding out the letters. If the first letter starts out as a vowel, as does this (ehm - are - eye)...you would use an 'an'.
However, if you were to say the words of these initials, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, then you would use an 'a'.

The other day, while I was driving to a supermarket, the left edge of my sight appeared unusual. I actually couldn't see well. Moreover, I had a slight headache. I remembered then that I had watched a medical program on TV a few days before. It said that when you have had a stroke, your eyelid might feel heavy. When I came to think of it, my eyelid felt a little heavy.
Fortunately, the symptoms didn't last for long.
However, I was afraid that I might have had a light stroke.

When my husband came home from work, I told him about my suspected stroke.
He said that since I had gotten mad with my son during test week, it might have caused the stroke. I thought that he was right. I couldn't sleep well that night. I decided to go to a brain surgeon before going to an eye doctor.

First, I told the nurse at the surgeon's office about my symptoms. She said that I would undergo an MRI. I had expected this, but it would be my first time to undergo such a procedure. Although I took a book, I was too nervous to concentrate on reading while I was waiting for it.

Just before undergoing the MRI, another nurse asked me some questions. One of the questions she had asked was whether or not I had any teeth implants. I didn't have any, but I asked her about it. She said that if you had, you sometimes can't undergo an MRI procedure.
I thought of how I didn't want to have any teeth implants in the future.

When I went inside the MRI room, I got earplugs. When I *lay down, a technologist recommended that I close my eyes during the procedure. It took about 15 minutes. I had expected the sound from the MRI would be too noisy, but it was like music to me. It was OK.

*Lay is the past tense of lie. When you do it to yourself, or he/she/it had done it to him/her/itself, it is lie / lay / lain / lying.

The doctor diagnosed that there were no problems in my brain, around the eyes. However, he had found something strange in part of a blood vessel. He had doubts as to whether it was swollen, or if one blood vessel and another one were crossing.
So, I will go back for a check up in three months.
I believe it will be OK.

Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you so much for the corrections.

Lay/laid/laid/laying and lie/lay/lain/lying often confuse me.
